Namiki Emperor Double Dragon Fountain Pen
Fearsome and powerful, dragons are also considered benevolent and the bringers of wealth and good fortune. In Japanese mythology, the dragon is highly regarded as the Guardian of the East and symbolises strength, power and protection.
There are two types of Japanese dragons; one belonging to the sky while the other is found in bodies of water as illustrated on the cap and barrel of the Emperor-sized pen using the Taka (raised) Maki-e technique, the highest level of advanced Maki-e techniques which requires at least three months to produce. The sky dragon depicted on the cap of the fountain pen is seen fiercely guardian the pearl within its three-clawed grasp, believed to be the wish-fulfilling pearl jewel.
The Namiki Emperor Double Dragon Fountain Pen is available in Fine Medium (FM), Medium (M) and Broad (B) nibs. Do note that this Namiki Emperor Double Dragon Fountain Pen is not a limited edition and should not be confused with the limited edition version of the Namiki Emperor Double Dragon Limited Edition 200 pieces made in the millenium 2000.

Namiki is the surname of Ryosuke Namiki, the founder of the Pilot, named Namiki Manufacturing Company until 1938 when it became Pilot Pen Co., Ltd.. The brand name Namiki came to fame in the early 20th Century when Dunhill retailed in the west the Maki-e pens produced by Pilot under the brand Dunhill-Namiki. This partnership has continued to the present day (occasionally Namiki makes a Limited Edition for Dunhill) although Namiki has always been owned by Pilot.
The premium Namiki ranges include the Emperor Collection, Yukari Royale, and Yukari Collection, and this is the brand used by Pilot to sell their the high valued Maki-e pens worldwide.
